Located on Watertown Plank Road between Juneau and Legion, all makes and models of classic cars and motorcycles can register for the Show between 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., with entrance at the corner of Watertown Plank Rd. and Juneau Blvd. To be held rain or shine, dash plaques will be given to the first 100 registrants, with the first 200 registrants receiving an event “goodie bag.”

The Woller-Anger/Hagerty Youth Judging Program is open to youth ages 8-14 and is designed to get young people more involved in classic cars by interacting with owners and their cars. The youth judging team will be working with mentors and judging five cars from the show. The free program is offered to the first 15 children that register. Youth judging runs from noon until 1:30 p.m., with the winner announced at 2 p.m. For more information or to register your child, call Woller-Anger & Company at 262-789-2500. You may also register at the show up until 11:45 a.m. if openings remain.
